There are far more reasons than what is mentioned in one of these articles why Superman movies have struggled to be exciting.  ;D

‘Bridgerton’ star Regé-Jean Page allegedly rejected for TV role because of race
by Christi Carras






DC Entertainment reportedly passed on “Bridgerton” breakout Regé-Jean Page for a role in Syfy’s “Krypton” after an executive allegedly argued that the series’ lead could not be portrayed by a Black actor.

Before his star skyrocketed with the release of Shonda Rhimes’ hit period drama, Page auditioned to play Superman’s grandfather in the action program, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Despite the “Krypton” creators’ reported desire to diversify the DC Extended Universe, then-DC chief creative officer Geoffrey Johns allegedly said Superman’s grandfather could not be Black.

In a statement paraphrased Tuesday by THR, a rep for Johns defended the casting decision on the grounds that the Hollywood exec “believed fans expected the character to look like a young Henry Cavill,” who is white and plays Superman in the DC films.

The starring role in “Krypton,” which ran for two seasons from 2018 to 2019, eventually went to white actor Cameron Cuffe.

According to Joseph P. Illidge on Twitter:

"Superman gets his power from the SUN.
Kryptonians worship a god called RA.
RA is the EGYPTIAN SUN GOD.

So yes, Superman's mythology incorporates worship of Blackness.

Have a good day."
